Updated: New App Details California Beach Access 12-14-18 05:05 DC
There is a new smartphone app available this morning that shows more than 1,600 beach access points along the California coast. Called “YourCoast” the free California Coastal Commission app can be downloaded from iPhone and Android app stores.
The app was created with help from Sean Parker, the Napster co-founder and former Facebook exec whose over-the-top 2013 wedding ran afoul of state regulators. Parker paid $2 million as a penalty and agreed to help create the app.
Along with locations, the app shows the paths beachgoers need to access the water, along with information on fishing, restrooms, and other amenities.
